Wake Forest Historical Museum Book Club

Come join us! We are delighted to partner with the Wake Forest Historical Museum on a special book club. 

Each book club meeting will include a casual discussion with museum staff about a work of historical nonfiction, and possibly in the future, historical fiction. Museum staff will typically pick books published within the last 2-3 years that explore local and regional history or explore exhibit themes.

For now, book club meetings will happen four times per year. We encourage you to register for the book club meetings that most interest you. There is no obligation to participate in every book discussion.

If you have questions or concerns about the museum’s book club, including challenges affording the book, please email Sarah Soleim soleims@wfu.edu or call the museum.

Order any of the books below and register through the link https://wakeforestmuseum.org/2021/03/09/join-the-museum-book-club/
